Eagles QB coach Lazor goes to Dolphins

Posted: January 17, 2014

The Miami Dolphins hired Eagles quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor on Wednesday to be their offensive coordinator. He succeeds Mike Sherman, who was fired.

Chip Kelly had hired Lazor as part of his first Eagles coaching staff.

Lazor, 41, was the Eagles assistant most expected to move on after Kelly's first season. He has had success at various stops and had worked with several offenses.

The Eagles don't have an obvious successor on staff, although Kelly and offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur could easily assume the responsibility of overseeing the quarterbacks.

Notable. Tom Gamble, the Eagles vice president of player personnel, isn't expected to meet with the Dolphins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers about their general manager openings even though both teams reached out to interview him last week, according to sources. . . . Eagles running back LeSean McCoy was named NFC offensive player of the year. Kansas City Chiefs and former Eagles coach Andy Reid was named AFC coach of the year for the NFL 101 Awards presented in March.
